Kneehigh's Ubu - Show 1
Kneehigh's Ubu! A Singlong Satire
Kneehigh’s Ubu! A Singalong Satire
Conceived by Carl Grose, Charles Hazlewood & Mike Shepherd
Created by the company
Based on the play by Alfred Jarry
We all know an Ubu.
Impossibly greedy, unstoppably crude, and hell-bent on making this country great again.
Kneehigh returns to its roots, exploding Alfred Jarry’s surreal, riot-inducing and weirdly prescient masterpiece.
Ubu is a wildly entertaining, rough-and-ready promenade musical that puts the audience firmly at its heart. Part play, part rock gig, part stand-up, part game show, part singalong mass karaoke, this is a thrillingly unique immersive experience led by a skilled team of Kneehigh stalwarts at their anarchic best.
Presented in an exciting new venue (the Marble Factory nightclub), with a belting Kneehigh band playing a cracking catalogue of classic tunes, all that’s missing is the magical ingredient – you! Come together, howl in protest and sing in hope for a better future.
Kneehigh’s Ubu is joy as an act of resistance. He’ll rise! He’ll reign! Only together will we make Ubu fall!
“A perfect blend of slapstick, pertinent politics and fist-in-the-air singalong. Rousing, riotous stuff!” – Mark Kermode
This show is standing and unreserved. Throughout the show you are free to wander, go to the bar, and sing at the top of your voice. There are leaning bars, and limited seats for those who need them, as well as platforms for wheelchair users.
